ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) - Jim Crews isn't buying the notion that St. Louis may be in a precarious position as a No. 5 seed in the NCAA tournament.
The Billikens (26-6) face No. 12 seed North Carolina State (22-13) in the second round of the Midwest Regional, however the coach stressed Wednesday that the outcome will be determined by how well the teams play - not recent history, which suggests his team should be wary.
From 2008 through 2013, at least one No. 12 seed has upset a No. 5. In five of the last eight years, there have been at least two such upsets.
